Good luck Judge Karen Pozza!
I hope you succeed.
Judge Pozza might be first woman on federal bench here
By Gary Martin - Express-News
WASHINGTON — State district Judge Karen Pozza of San Antonio is under consideration by the White House for a vacancy on the federal bench in the Western District of Texas, officials said Tuesday. She would become the first woman to serve on the federal bench in the city.
“My understanding is that the White House is moving forward on the background checks on Karen Pozza,” said U.S. Rep. Charlie Gonzalez, D-San Antonio, himself a former district court judge.
Texas Democrats in the state's congressional delegation are recommending President Barack Obama nominate Pozza to the position, which became vacant when Judge Royal Ferguson took senior status in 2008.
